Sharing ideas and experiences at our 2018 conference in Lisbon

The Web Effectiveness Conference (WEC) was born from our popular Web Effectiveness Network meetings, where top web managers discuss the most challenging online issues facing corporate communications.

Attending the conference will enable you to make and maintain contact with high-level peers who are responsible for big complex web estates. Operating across private, public and non-governmental sectors, the conference helps you stay in touch with the key operational and strategic issues‚ and how they are being addressed by fellow members around the world.

All our meetings and conferences are sponsor and vendor free - that means we have to charge more but in return you get to share and learn in open discussions and expand your 'A' network in a social, informal, collegiate atmosphere. It's an opportunity to discuss your challenges with peers at roundtable discussions and real-life presentations with a proper opportunity to question and challenge people who have the same job as you. All in a sales-pitch free environment. 

The key theme for 2018 was: Communicating effectively across cultures

The event provided:

  • new perspectives on measurement, governance and editorial strategy.
  • a clear focus on the issues facing corporate digital teams today and for the future
  • a unique opportunity to share ideas with peers in online corporate communications in a relaxed, vendor-free environment

“If you haven’t participated in similar events, you must attend. If you have seen others, you must attend!”
